While waiting in the airport bar, the young hotel manager -- who is anxious to get back to her job -- meets Jack Rippner (Murphy), who is waiting for the same red-eye flight. Soon after take-off she learns that Jack has in fact kidnapped her in order to help facilitate the murder of the head of Homeland Security, who happens to be staying in her hotel. Jack threatens Lisa if she refuses to cooperate and, at 30,000 feet, she has nowhere to run.
